Sessional GPs: General Information

The LMC and Sessional GPs

The LMC is the only committee with a statutory obligation to represent the interests of ALL local GPs.

Whether partner, salaried, locum or portfolio, our role is to ensure that you are properly valued, and your skills appropriately utilised.

We also endeavour to ensure you enjoy a standard of living commensurate with your profession, commitment and training.

LMCs influence local and national health policy. We liaise directly with NHSE, ICB and secondary care to ensure the voice of general practice is heard loud and clear.

With the changing landscape in general practice we want to make sure all types of GPs have a voice.

To find out more about our role and how to get involved please navigate through the website. If you have any questions please contact us.
